Dr. Kalil is truly a wonderful doctor, knowledgeable, professional and caring. He serves his patients' interests first and foremost, as anyone who has taken the Hippocratic oath should do. He took the best care of my friend after a stroke, answered all our questions in a most courteous and professional manner. He takes time with the patient. His evaluation andrecommendations were excellent. Having been to so many doctors lately, Dr. Kalil left us with the absolute best impression.

Dr. Kalil is truly FOR the patient. I don't think it's easy for doctors to advocate for what is in their patients' best interest anymore, but Dr. Kalil is one of the FINEST patient advocates I have EVER had the privilege of meeting and working with.
Wonderful doctor. Spends time with you and answers all your questions. He runs behind schedule because he gives everyone individual attention. No rushing to get you in and out.
